Busy as a Bumble Bee

Hi Ladies! Just wanted to stop in and let everyone that signed up for the doll swap know I'll have your partner to you by monday.I have a good excuse..smile..Hubby and I went yard saling today well we were driving by this one and he said."Wow did you see that?" so we made a u turn and went back.Oh my goodness prims galore of course I was a little broke just paid mortgage and missed market for 2 weeks but I managed to get a few things with my hideaway money.Let me tell you the yard was filled crocks,firkins,tin punched lights,High back chairs not sure what their called but the upholstered colonial ones we prim lovers want($100),Old quilts,cuboards,signs and on and on.Let me tell you I was totally in a daze I would have bought everything if I could afford it.The girl having it said I'm selling off all my prims to go to breezy beach style and boy did she have the good stuff.Anyhow my main thing I bought a Pie Safe Cupboard from her wich of course I had no room for but couldn't pass up.So I spent the day rearranging the whole kitchen and living room.Which lead to me wanting to get rid of some stuff as I rearranged.So now my sunporch is filled so I decided tomorrow I'm going to the bad fleamarket (haven't set up in over a year there) The people there are rude and cheap by this I mean they will literally ask you to take a quarter if you have a dollar on something,but I'm going to give it a try since sunday is going to rain and I can't set up at my regular market.I have good stuff I'm taking at resonable prices so hoping I get a few good people through.I already told hubby if they are rude I'm leaving early and he can set my stuff out for the good old days next week.I will show you my tweeking pics in a few days..So haven't had much computer time..Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!~Amy

Wish I could stumble upon a yard sale like that!! I get so mad with blogger...it doesn't give me all the posts from the blogs I follow and yours is one. Wish I would have seen your doll swap and I would have jumped in!! Really enjoyed the fall swap you held. Sent my package weeks early as I had other deadlines and had the date for yours a month early!! :o) Have fun with the swap!! ~Kriss~

Why does it always seem like everyone else finds all the good stuff! I guess I better look harder next time!!!
Can't wait to see the pics!
Have a wonderful day!
